How we can help
Schools are an integral part of any community. They are places where we educate our children.
But they’re more than that. They act as community meeting places, polling stations and shelters and command centres in times of emergency. The play a central role in civic life that makes them highly visible and gives them great symbolic value.
In playing these roles, schools must convey transparency and openness. It is this very design which makes them difficult to secure and vulnerable to physical attack. And ever since the fatal school shooting at Columbine High School in, enhancing security at America’s schools has become a priority.
A comprehensive security strategy will have many dimensions and an experienced and trained security professional can help you determine the most appropriate strategy for your facility. However, in any building, glass is the weak-link. Doors and windows are among the most vulnerable parts of a building and the most difficult to secure1.
